The marketing and PR partnerships provide valuable ways to showcase our businesses to customers, where we would not have the capacity to do so. The non-tangible and tangible returns from our partnership well exceeds our investment.”

Avery Windham, Hyatt Place Portland Old Port


“I respect what Visit Portland does for the businesses in our community and we see the partnership as a great value for our business.”

– Jeff Gambardella, Nonesuch River Brewing


“Portland needs tourism to sustain its awesome, unique small business & restaurant scene. It helps to ensure that we are here year-round for the local, friendly faces we see daily. We have something very special here in Maine, and the millions that continue to visit allow so many of us the opportunity to grow, flourish, and create.”

– Tom Largay, Old Port Card Works \ Old Port Candy Co.
